He did not fall into a restful slumber and then slip into a coma to be transported peacefully to the great beyond. It was a horrible experience, for him and for us.

His skin became paper thin that even a slight rub against his sheet caused it to tear and bleed. His whole body itched, and because his skin was nearly transparent, the mere act of scratching caused bruising. His feet and legs swelled. He could not control his bowels. He barely ate or drank.
He lost the ability to swallow. His lungs filled with fluid. He became disoriented, belligerent. He became skin and bones. Hospice was no help. They sent a nurse once a week. A doctor came one time for thirty minutes during the 25 days. They advised keeping him constantly medicated with morphine. They wanted to take his blood to see if he was anemic to give him a blood transfusion.
Beverly patiently told them, no, thank you. Three days before dad passed, he fell and Beverly could not lift him off the floor.

It was two in the morning. She called Hospice and asked for help. Well , she reasoned with the nurse on the other end, we are in crisis and need help. It even says that in your brochure. Everyone thinks that. Besides, this is your crisis, not his. Not knowing what else to do, Beverly called One hour later, three EMTs put Pops back in bed. I saw dad a few hours later.

Overall book rating
If dad had known it would be like this, Beverly and I agreed, staying on dialysis might have been a better choice. At a minimum, if he had known what he would actually experience and how unhelpful Hospice would be, he would have been able to make a more informed decision about ending his life.
Knowing Hospice was no help other than supplying medicine and medical supplies and sending over a marvelous Pastor who befriended dad and our family, Beverly hired a private nurse. Jeannette came at 5pm, sat with Pops, prayed with him and Beverly, sang to him, bathed him. She made Beverly get some much needed and deserved rest. In the morning, staying later then when she was supposed to, she positioned him in bed on his side with a pillow between his legs. Exactly how he liked to sleep. Jeannette told Beverly to stop giving him any morphine, which she did.
Dad was no longer belligerent. Make sure you bill me for this overtime. Four hours after Jeannette finally left, Dad died. Beverly told me to come right over. White pillows surrounded dad, a white blanket lay gently over him. He was dressed in white. He was clean.
There were no lines on his face. His mouth was relaxed. Finally, he was at peace. With hindsight, we would have done many things differently. Dad would have wanted things done differently too. We would have considered a death unlike the fairy tale one the doctors and others described. We would not have called Hospice as we could have gotten his meds elsewhere. We would not have given him morphine, as it became clear that was the source of his agitation. We would have hired a private nurse much sooner. In the end, dad did ride off into the sunset on a puff of clouds. Purchase Amazon.
